OXNARD, Calif. (August 10, 2012) -- All those young wideouts lining up for a chance to be the No. 3 receiver for the Dallas Cowboys are getting some extra chances.
With Miles Austin dealing with hamstring issues again, Kevin Ogletree is getting extra snaps in practice with the first team and Cole Beasley has come back strong after leaving camp for two days last week because of personal reasons. Dwayne Harris, Tim Benford and Andre Holmes also could get more playing time in the preseason opener Monday night at Oakland.
Coach Jason Garrett repeatedly says injuries provide opportunities for players. With Austin out, he said Friday that gives the young receivers a chance to show what they can do.
Owner Jerry Jones has indicated he's pleased with the young receivers.
